Nice shots - I don't remember seeing the Beach Patrol buggy there.

Terrific weekend! I had my Sterling there - hope to have the Shalako there next year - maybe tow it there with the Sterling...ummmm...maybe

I'll have a video posted in a few days - much editing needed.

Hi all,

I made it back last night at 1 AM. 11 hours..not too bad considering the rain and weather. My S -10 did great until the last 50 miles as I apparently fueled up with some bad gas just inside the SC border.

The moncoque is filthy (I wonder why)

I have today off andam grateful as I have to dry out everything...darn rain!
I had a blast .It was great meeting you all.

I hope you all had safe return trips.

The Tijuana Kustoms BBQ Friday night was great Tom went all out all the burgers hotdogs and beer you can consume. Bruce came along with Winnie and countless amount of the greatest buggy guys.
Thanks Tom for a nice evening..

ANother kudos to Tom and the Tijuana Troupe for the fire pit Thursday night and Friday night. Anyone have pics of the fire pit that someone made (I say that only to get lively banter about who REALLY made the fire pit   ;-)

Last year Farmerjohn and I used a cement mixing tub. This year I wanted something different. I spoke with Tom about getting a 55 gal barrel and one showed up at the shop. It was ounce used for concentrated orange juice and had some crazy coating in it and on it! We burned some of it off so I would have raw metal, the rest came off with a wire wheel and ear plugs... it was loud!!   The barrel was cut down to 12'' and the top was rolled and pounded over do a smooth and strong top edge. I come in one day and Tom was working on the stand which is not attached to the barrel for easy emptying and replacing. I know you need air holes for a better burn so I figured that  I'll make them in the shape of buggies I also included the sun and the palm tree form the Tijuana Kustoms business card. I was told to watch the design because I could cut something wrong and have pieces fall out. After playing with it for a few days I felt I was ready to make a few cuts. I first cut it out of paper, and then went to oak tag and once I was happy with that I sprayed paint through the stencil onto my barrel. I would let that dry and then fire up the plasma cutter.... This was the end result.

I was told by someone that he didn't think I would get it done :-)

My stencil has ended up on several things
4 on the tow van
1 on the side of the Boonie buggy
1 on the trailer
1 on a tent
1 on a pair of chairs
1 on the side of a golf cart belonging to the Carlisle Event manager ;-)
1 on the Tijuana Kustom sign

GREAT JOB on the burn barrel. Looks like you guys had a blast there. Too bad I couldn't be in two places at the same time or I would have been in Carlisle too.

Hey Steve, Nice work on the videos. I watched both. Looked like you guys had a blast! Sorry to see all the rain, but looks like you guys made the best of it anyway! Thanks for taking the time to put that together for the rest of us that couldn't make it.
